Just regular pedestrian traffic on the street being so dense that this is an issue? I grew up in Chicago and it certainly wasn't, there. I spent an entire day walking around Seattle (primarily the densest bits) last summer and it certainly wasn't there, either. Nor anywhere else I've been. I can imagine it in parts of SF, which I have hardly spent any time in, but hard to imagine it anywhere else in the US.
    Living in a small city in upstate NY I see this when two girls are walking down the sidewalk together. The only way for me to avoid a collision is to step entirely off the sidewalk. Never occurs with men or people walking alone.

    Quicky.

    Press
    45x8, 75x8, 95x8, 115x8, 135x8, 145x5x2
    KB Swing
    16x15, 20x15, 24x10x3
    Notes: Haven't pressed in a while and these felt not too bad on the ventral repair. Was happy to get up to 145. Left shoulder was irritable. A wonderful reminder that surgery on that side is probably inevitable at some point, too. Went to 24kg swings for the first time and seemed OK.

    RDL
    45x10, 95x8, 135x8, 155x8, 175x8x2
    Chins
    2,3,3,3,3,3
    Notes: RDLs were fine and easy. Doing the rack pulls with heavier weights is re-acclimating me to holding weights in my hands so the 175 felt light, even though last time I did RDLs, 135 or so felt heavy in my hands. Which was somewhat demoralizing.

    Chins, tried to stay "hollower" and keep the sets short, and that seemed to help. Ventral repair didn't get irritated. So some encouraging stuff here.

    Also totally random, stupid, and idiotic, but I was coaching a very strong (female) bodybuilder in the deadlift yesterday morning and she was working up to a single at 375 (before barely missing 405 only because she'd never had to grind through a rep in her life and easily will do it once she learns). Anyway, when 375 was on the bar, I did a single rep, double overhand, in my squishy new balance shoes. With no warm-up. I was trying to show her something, and also just generally mentally in the dumps about basically not even lifting for months and months. My knees couldn't handle the start position, it's just terribly painful, so my form is more like an SLDL, but it was still easy. With no warmup, DOH grip, and the squishy shoes. So that was a mental win, even if stupid.

    Default Friday, 11/24

    Went back to the doctor to check on my hernia repairs. All seems fine on the surface, just taking longer than expected to be pain and irritation free.

    Bench Press
    265x5, 285x3, 305x1, 265x5, then 245x5 close grip
    Squat
    BWx10x2, 16kg x8, 24kg x8x3, BWx10
    Notes: Bench was pretty easy.

    Rack Pull
    - just below knee
    135x5, 225x5, 265x5x3
    Chins
    BWx3x4, BWx4
    Notes: All easy and both chins and rack pulls didn't irritate the ventral repair much. So maybe some movement in the right direction, hopefully not a fluke. Trying to be more "hollow" with the chins seems to help. Though abdominal engagement is high in that position, it doesn't seem to bother it as much as being elongated and stretched does.

    I was similar both before and after my last inguinal repair. I fought through discomfort on the lifts pre-surgery by just getting "extra tight." Then afterwords I felt the discomfort for quite a while with the bench press arch and chins, long after the Squat, DL and Press had started feeling normal again

    If only I could squat or DL, I could test that out and see if I'm the same. But my knees are preventing me from doing that. The light goblet squats and rack pulls seem OK, though the rack pulls only since last week.

    Bench Press - feet up
    275x5x3
    Squat
    BW x10x2, 16kg x8, 24kg x8x4


    Rack Pull -
    just below knee
    135x5, 225x5, 275x5, 295x5x2
    Chins
    BWx5x3, BWx4x3
    Notes: 275 was easy and felt fine so moved to 295. After not having anything like that in my hands for nearly 4 months, it's crazy how heavy it feels. Moved quick though, no issues. Stayed hollow again on chins, seems OK.

    Default Weds. 12/6

    starting strength coach development program
    Missed Monday due to simply being busy + since I'm unable to train hard/for real right now anyway, it's lower on the priority list than usual.

    On Weds:

    Bench Press - close grip
    225x8x3, 255x3
    Squat (goblet)
    BWx10x2, 16kg x9, 24kgx9, 32kgx9x2, 24kgx9x2
    Notes: 32kg bell is harder to hold than to squat.

    Rack Pull - just below knee
    135x5, 225x5, 315x5, 325x5x2
    275x15 second hold x 2
